I do love carrots, but not the tired, metallic
tasting carrots you get at the store in the middle
of winter. This year at the market I found a
farming family who took great pride in
having strange carrots. They sold carrots
shaped like round orange balls, carrots in
red, yellow and sometimes a dark purple,
and all of their carrots were delicious.
We ate them in stir-fries, soup and salad
and were entirely delighted.
This little watercolour features bunches
of their beauties on a lovely antique blue
and white platter. Fit setting for these
Have an eating-your-carrots day.
